    NHL Data Feeds?


    Hi All,

    Does anyone know of a website or data source where i can pull in National Hockey League data?

    For example...

    I would like to pull in live in-game scores, standings, player bios etc

    I have been searching for these answers for months to no avail. NHL.com will not respond to my emails so i can assume they do not provide this data.

    thanks!

    You'll find it VERY hard to find these sorts of data feeds. That sort of data is the only thing that the NHL (and other organisations like it) have for themselves, and they don't like ot share it out.

    Why? Easy. The data keeps people coming back to them for stas, scores, details, etc. If you had spent that much money collecting all of that data, would you want to just hand it out to anyone that asks for it so they can use it for their own purposes without paying for it?
